Hey everyone! It's been a crazy year of course, but I hope everyone's doing well!

So first off, BIG THANKS to the new followers! We're at 81 now, glad you guys dig my stuff! Secondly, I changed my name from "MoonCoontheLoon" to Raccatoons on all my platforms. After over 7 years of using the old name, I figured I'd mix it up a bit and simplify things to avoid future confusion. Hopefully this won't cause you (my homies) to abandon my sorry ass.

I've been working on an Avatar parody cartoon this summer, it's been really fun! I'm streaming the whole thing over on Twitch at twitch.tv/raccatoons, mostly with the vocal accompaniment of my animator friend mickaleaf. The last time I did a parody was over 6 years ago, so it definitely feels great to do one again with everything new I have in my toolbelt! I'll be posting that to Newgrounds late next week if all goes well!

If you're wondering why I haven't done more animation, I'm still in college (LMAO) but I'm finally graduating this year. I have a feeling I really want to break into the animation industry next year, but I still have a lot of figuring out to do. Working on films is always an option as well. I feel like most of you can relate to not knowing exactly which path you may wanna take with life, but honestly? There's so much time left, I feel like I don't need to be tied down to one thing, one exact career path. I can always change it up if things get stale! And so can YOU so if you've read this far don't allow yourself to become a stale lil potato chip you've gotta keep everything fresh. Just follow your big ol' heart and you'll always go the right way. Thanks again for stickin' around, and best of luck on your future projects. Just keep posting, and consider being a supporter for Newgrounds if you can! Later dorks!

Hey Newgrounds, it's been a while!

I have 58 followers now, which confuses me but welcome! I'm glad some people like my stuff. If one of you could scout me, that'd be awesome! I like creating 2D art but I feel like it never gets seen on here because I'm unscouted.

As for animation, hahaaaa well (man can I really include over 32,000 characters in this thing?) I'm not gonna go that in depth but essentially I've learned a lot about film production and I'm going to college for that, so I don't have a whole lot of time or creative energy left to animate at this point. I may put out some stuff this year, but it'll likely be sketch animations, or more short films. I can't post my short films here though, you'll have to check out my youtube for that! I wish Newgrounds would allow for original short films to be shared on the site, but I get why that's not in the cards.

Anyways, thanks for sticking around if you actually read this whole thing! I hope to continue making better stuff as the years go on and I get older and older and eventually die. Until next time!

Okay WOW here's another hot Newgrounds update that I don't think anybody will read but I'm gonna post it anyway.

I was able to make cartoons regularly during my time in High School but now that I've been in college and making my own living I've had to work different jobs. Taco Bell, Domino's, etc.

Right now I'm going to OU and trying to make a habit of drawing at least a little every day. I'd liketo do another cartoon again (maybe an oneyplays animated) but it has become much harder to find the time. 

I recently became a Newgrounds Supporter and would encourage you to do the same if you can, as this site is one of the few remaining that actually empowers creators, rather than making them corporate puppets.

Anyways that's about all I've got for now. Toodles.

Hey person! So I went to Pico Day this year and had a great time. Met a lot of great artists and got a scope of what the community is actually like in person. Everyone was super cool! I'm still animating even though my last post was ages ago... trust me it's only been that long because I've been putting my all into this new one I'm doing.

Also college.

I plan to have my cartoon out by sometime next month, and it'll be just about 5 minutes in length. After that, I might do another Mega64animated but most likely I'm gonna do a SleepyCabin animated. Drawing the same people for over a year gets old, ya know? We'll see what happens.

That's it for now, later!

I've started work on a Wisenheimers animation and I'm really enjoying it! It should be out by the end of next week. After that I'm going to make another Game Grumps animated. I might just go back and forth between Wisenheimers and Game Grumps for a while. WHO KNOWS?!

Thanks for being lovely.4444320_139457412521_l9IC63A.jpg
